Some of the Crown post offices now have the BU and Proof coins in stock.

Meanwhile there is no coin for Rupert Bear, who is English. It's becoming increasingly clear that "Paddington" was only brought in from Peru to drive down our Rupert's wages. Rupert could once no doubt have commanded 100 thousand pounds for posing for a 50 pence design, but "Paddington" was probably content with a couple of jars of marmalade. Time was, UKIP would have organised an emergency meeting about this and picketed the Royal Mint. No wonder nobody votes for UKIP any more.  ::)

So the release of these RAF coins brings a further four to fruition from eurocoinís original post.

Iím glad I knew about these already.  Anyone that didnít must be wondering when new coin issues are going to end for this year.

We still have the Captain Cook coin left, plus the two Paddington Bear 50p coins.  Anything else Iíve missed?

Captain Cook's voyage - design details of first of three coins is now known.

eurocoin has already posted a photo of it earlier today - see page 10.  It did get a bit buried with the Paddington talk though.  :)

Sorry, is this the Captain Cook coin or the Paddington?  Iím assuming the former, but with there being the coloured proof Paddington coin you posted, Iím not sure which you meant.
